When Ginny Turner arrives to take up her new post as Regimental Admin Officer, there are mixed feelings on ‘the patch’. Her old friend Debbie is delighted: Ginny is fun, good company, and will brighten things up no end. Alice Davies, wife of commanding officer Bob Davies, is less pleased. She remembers Ginny from an earlier posting as being ‘a bit fast’. Ginny herself is excited, not least at the prospect at being reunited with her old boss, for whom she has long held a candle. When the regiment embarks on an emergency tour of Kosovo – minus wives – Colonel Bob and Ginny are inevitably thrown together. Will they put their ambition and careers first, or will they give into temptation and their mutual attraction? Either way a stormy road lies ahead for Bob and Ginny.
